Hyatt on the Bund Shanghai

This is part of the Trip Report The Visa Run Keeps Running (October 2014) which started and ended in Mongolia with these stops along the way:

Here is the overview for this report: All in Business, All for $200 And 30,000 US AIR Miles


Getting There: If you are arriving at Pudong airport, the fastest/most convenient way to get to the Bund is to take the Maglev then a friendly taxi from there. Be sure to print out the name of your hotel in Mandarin characters and show it to the driver.


Following the visa mess up, I had to change my plans from two nights at Hyatt on the Bund to basically one long evening. Hyatt on the Bund is a Category 4 hotel which makes it eligible for a free night’s stay if you are a Chase Hyatt card holder. I used cash and points which was 7500 GoldPassport + $100 + 15% service charge, a great deal considering for Halloween weekend the rooms were going for $330 a night.

Hyatt on the Bund as the name makes apparent is in a great location: the Bund. The Bund faces Pudong Skyline which in my opinion is the best in the world.

The room overlooked the Huangpu River and Pudong. Besides the next morning, I did not get to enjoy it too much. Given the beauty and location of the hotel, it is quite a shame I was only here for a few hours making this review less than extraordinary. Nevertheless, I did take some great pictures and will certainly return both to my former home, Shanghai, and Hyatt on the Bund.

Like a scene out of Indiana Jones.
